    "John Kelly Clark is the bomb"

    Loved this book, one of my favorite Clancy works for sure. You just got to love a guy who fights for those who cannot fight for themselves. Clancy does a masterful job of developing this awesome character John Clark and it serves him well in many books to come. You learn what makes John tick and why he does the things he does. Michael Pritchard is good as the narrator but gets a bit monotone at times. I found it difficult to distinguish different characters sometimes because his voice doesn’t always vary with that character change. Other than that, a steal at only one credit!

    Story
    "How a legend started"
    What did you love best about Without Remorse?

    how even when Kelly is super scary, he stands up for women rights, Sandy had gotten into a argument with a stubborn doctor who started to threaten her with violence, waving a fist at her when Kelly grabbed his hand and almost broke it, making the doctor apologize to Sandy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    One of my favorite scenes in the book is when Kelly does his first run with the Recon force, how he got very close to the flags and no one noticed it.


    Any additional comments?

    Who is John Clark? What did he do in the past? Why does he hate druggies so much? after a few novels with Jack Ryan and John Clark, Tom Clancy goes back and writes about how John Terrence Kelly former navy retired and happily married gets his whole world turned up side down. with his wife dead and with a potential new girlfriend killed, you have to ask, how does a man trained to kill get even. I find some of the things he can do scary. and yet while in the middle of getting his revenge with a drug ring the US CIA have need of his talents to help save some POW who are claimed to be dead. I love this unique book of this style. it may not be how the navy seals work but its close enough in my mind to make someone try to stay on his good side.

    Story
    "Strong, clever killer as hero"

    The story line is extremely violent. There are evil characters, involved in the drug trade. The hero picks up one of their victims, and becomes involved as he learns of their evil doings; then goes on a murder rampage. The first 6 men he kills are minor characters, unrelated to his major goal. The author claims this is "camouflage"; but it amounts to the "hero" taking law into his own hands, and murdering people for less than capital crime behavior.
    A second theme is the Vietnam war; and the intrepid hero is called in for a major plan (which does not succeed). The author takes a totally hawkish stance in this war, and turns people interested in seeing the war end into treasonous villains. Between these themes, the novel becomes nauseating.
    While the reading is done well, the recording is extremely poor. One can hardly hear any sibilants; it is almost as if the reader is lisping.

    "Tom Clancy is great!"

    I have read Tom Clancy for years and was excited to see my favorite book in audio. The story is one that really draws you in, but the narrator could use more depth.

    "For a long book it was great"

    I had never read a Tom Clancy novel and for such a long book and with it taking place many years ago, I loved it. Typically I am not a fan of older novels that arent remotely relative to me but this was great. I loved the military aspect and the vindication in the story.

    "Classic Tom Clancy"

    Great book. This it where it all starts. I found the Clancy books to be just that much better if read in chronological order vs published order. It really draws you in to the whole series. Start here and run through them all, you won't regret it.

    "A Clancy Classic"

    Read this book 4 or 5 times now... Excellent read. It's got a feel of Dexter meets Jason Bourne... Probably one of my top 3 favorite books

    "Clark is the best"

    Clark is the best and his back story is amazing. I have read this before and it did not disappoint. Narrator the only thing that was not perfect. He is fine but not the best with different voices or pauses.

    Ok, but was like listening to Jack Webb. Very dated which highlights to the period authenticity.

    "Great story, bad narration"

    I really enjoy this book, it's got a few twists, good pace, vivid descriptions etc. But it is really let down by the narrator/recording - unfortunately the same on most classic Clancy books by the look of it. He is pretty monotone and doesn't bring much life to the story, but the worst is that multiple recording sessions have been chopped together mid-sentence! This is noticeable and distracting. Also, there is a complete lack of pause to indicate the end of a chapter or a change of scene making some jumps from sleepy USA to Vietnam PoW camp scenes very jarring.
    Still, despite it all, worth a listen on the merit of the story alone.

    "Great Book"

    I was originally introduced to the John Clark character when I read Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six and this story is a great insight into his character, his morals and sence of justice.

    "Superb story ruined by poor recording quality"

    This book has had me gripped since starting it. Having "stumbled" across Mr Clark in previously read Clancy books, it has been great to see where he started out from. My only gripe, as alluded to in my headline is the awful recording quality and perhaps Michael Pritchards' monotone performance

    "Brilliant"

    This is one of the better Tom Clancy books, it is focused on John Kelly (Clark) and has all of the hallmarks of a Clancy novel in the level of detail, and pace of the story, some of the characters are a bit over the top, but that does not detract from the overall story. This is one of those books, that is hard to put down or stop listeneing to! The audio quality is good and the narrator keeps the story going at a decent pace. Overall an excellant audiobook and I am likely to go back to it at some stage in the future.

    "Without Remorse"

    Gripping story line with great detail creates an atmosphere that engulfs you.

    I could not stop listening to this book. Tom Clancy at his best.

    Some reviews critisised the narrator I could not disagree more. I think he pitched it just right.

    "Thriller"

    I found this hard to put down and was listening at every opportunity. I loved the whole idea of the hero and what he achieved and shall follow up with any sequels of his exploits. If you like fast paced thrillers then this is for you.. Highly recommended.

    A really enjoyable book... good plot, fast paced and with vivid descriptions. The narration sounds likes it's dated but it doesn't take from the overall content.
